The Choice

The choice in this election is simple: will Bermuda move forward or back?

New Faces

When the OBA took power in 2012, the economy was in freefall, the government was deeply in debt, and many Bermudians had lost hope. Five years later, business is booming, and there is a newfound sense of optimism and Bermuda pride.

UK Entrustment Letter: Government of Bermuda and the Canadian Commercial Corporation concerning the Redevelopment of the Airport

Ministerial Statement to the House of Assembly 

By The Hon. Everard T. Richards, JP, MP 
Minister of Finance 

28th November, 2014 

Mr. Speaker, in my Ministerial Statement on November 21st 2014, I confirmed that the Government has received the appropriate Entrustment Letter from Her Majesty’s Government in the UK for Bermuda to contract with the CCC to redevelop the airport. This was despite the fact that a recent legal opinion established that a separate Entrustment was not necessary. 

In accordance with Government’s commitment to transparency and in reporting to Parliament, I am today tabling this Entrustment Letter. 

I can advise Honourable members that the Government is currently in discussions with the Governor on the terms and conditions specified in the Entrustment Letter and the Government commits to update this Honourable House on the outcome of these discussions in due course. 

Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
